SuperGroup in Xmas boom

first_img whatsapp SuperGroup in Xmas boom KCS-content Share SHARES in SuperGroup, the firm behind the Superdry fashion brand, jumped more than 19 per cent yesterday after the company reported its best ever Christmas trading.For the nine weeks to 2 January, total sales almost doubled to £65.1m from a year ago.The company said it had managed to counter the impact of rising cotton prices and its profit margins would not be affected this year.Last month, Supergroup shares slumped after the company mentioned the rising costs in an interim trading statement.Retail sales in the final two months of last year rose by 94 per cent to £51.7m against a year earlier, while wholesale sales increased by 78 per cent to £13.4m.Chief executive Julian Dunkerton said: “This performance demonstrates the strength of our brand and the loyalty of our customers. As a result of negotiations with our suppliers and selected price increases, we have largely mitigated the rise in cotton prices and there will be no impact to our 2011 gross margins.”Dunkerton said its overall sales growth would have approached 100 per cent had it not been for disruption caused by December’ s snow.SuperGroup was launched in 1985 and has 59 stores under its Superdry and Cult brands, as well as 69 concessions. The company listed on the stock exchange last March. Altium analyst Philip Dorgan said the performance had restored faith in the business after the “total cock-up” at its interims: “These sales numbers should go some way to reassuring the market that the bubble has not burst yet,” he said. The shares closed 226p higher at 1,390p yesterday.

How to invest in growth stocks

first_imgHow to invest in growth stocks Michael Taylor | Tuesday, 18th February, 2020 Growth stocks have been hugely popular over the last 10 years as the market has roared on to consecutive new highs in what has been the biggest bull market of all time. For that reason, growth stocks have been in favour, and many investors have cashed in on the capital growth that many of these stocks can offer.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Here’s how to invest in growth stocks.Find a growing market First of all, we need a growing market to find a growth stock to invest in. It is no good investing in a growth stock in an industry that is on its way out. Think of photography film or DVD rental.We want stock in companies that have an expanding and growing market, in which they will be able to attempt to take a slice of the pie on offer.Find a stock that is growing its revenues quickly We want stocks that are able to grow their top-line income. Stocks that can aggressively grow their business in the marketplace will see increases in revenue. While in the growth stage, profits are not so important as long as the business can expand and eventually turn those large revenues into profits. Companies that have a first mover advantage in a growing industry can be excellent growth company prospects, so long as the business can demonstrate high – and preferably accelerating – levels of growth.Find a stock that is operationally gearedStocks that benefit from operational gearing can be highly attractive growth investing candidates. Businesses that have fixed costs can see more and more of that revenue drop to the bottom line in profit when the business scales up. For example, a company that has a fixed-cost platform will need enough business to cover its costs. Once those costs are paid for, every penny of income then becomes profit, thus increasing the company’s margins.Find a company that has a high ROCEReturn on capital employed (ROCE) is the company’s interest rate. If a business can invest £100 into its own business, and in return receive £120, then we would say that the business has a ROCE margin of 20%. Given that compound interest works exponentially, the company could then reinvest the proceeds into the business and grow even faster. Find a business that is light on capital expenditureCompanies that do not require high amounts of capital expenditure on the maintenance side can grow incredibly quickly. Businesses that require heavy capex spend on things like machinery and equipment must spend in order to keep their business afloat, rather than pump that cash into further growth. By identifying businesses that fit these parameters, there is a good chance that you have found an exciting growth stock.  Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Enter Your Email Address I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

I will be in the hospital for at least a day, then at home to recuperate.I’ve been told that 4-6 weeks is a reasonable time to anticipate. I plan to resume my duties in early September and I do not anticipate any significant changes in my commitments.I am very blessed with a wonderful family, a first-rate medical team, a great staff, dear colleagues and friends, a calling to which I have given my life, and above all a good, great and loving God in whose hands we always remain.

Frogs win Hall of Fame Classic behind Samuel’s strong presence

Along with sports writing, Colin hopes to work in sports announcing after he graduates. Colin Post First TCU spring game since 2018 gets fans primed for a highly-anticipated fall Facebook Colin Posthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colin-post/ Taylor’s monster slam highlights big weekend for TCU Athletics Linkedin Colin Posthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colin-post/ printBehind a dominant effort by center Kevin Samuel, TCU basketball won both of its games this weekend to win the 2020 Hall of Fame Classic powered by ShotTracker.Samuel combined for 24 points and 23 rebounds in two games and was named the tournament MVP. The two wins move TCU to 3-0 on the season and give the Frogs their fourth in-season tournament championship under head coach Jamie Dixon. Game 1A monstrous double-double by Samuel led TCU to a 70-65 win over Tulsa on Saturday night in the team’s first major test of the season.The center led the Frogs with 16 points, and tied his career high of 18 rebounds to go with two blocks.Led by Samuel, the Frogs showed some grit down the stretch against the Golden Hurricanes. Tulsa tied the game at 57 with 4:46 remaining, but TCU answered with a 4-0 run, started by a three-pointer from true freshman Mike Miles.The Golden Hurricane then pulled back within two with just 92 seconds to go, but the Frogs answered with yet another three, this one courtesy of guard Taryn Todd. TCU then hit five of its last six free throws to keep Tulsa just out of reach and advance to Sunday’s championship game.“I liked how we grew during the game. [We] just got pushed around early,” Dixon said. “Lack of practice [means] young guys, not a physical bunch right now, but we will get there.”Dixon added that he thinks that no team in the country has practiced less than TCU because of COVID-19 restrictions the Frogs have had to follow. After starting the game with a 14-4 deficit, TCU never trailed in the second half.Miles and guard Francisco Farabello joined Samuel in double-digit scoring with 12 and 10 points, respectively. Todd added nine with two made threes.Junior R.J. Nembhard did score eight points in his first action of the season, but shot just 2-for-11 from the field. Nembhard missed the first game of the season due to COVID-19 protocols. Four Horned Frogs made two or more three-pointers, with the team shooting a respectable 40.7% from deep. The behind-the-arc shooting had been a big question mark for the Frogs entering this year with the loss of Desmond Bane.On the other hand, the Golden Hurricane went just 4-of-18 from deep (22.2%).Game 2A team-high 14 points from Nembhard, including two free throws to end the game, was just enough for TCU to edge out Liberty 56-52 on Saturday and secure the Hall of Fame Classic Championship trophy.Nembhard finished 8-for-9 from the charity strip to make up for a 3-for-10 shooting night. The junior also added six boards and four assists, joining Samuel on the all-tournament team.Nembhard said after the game that he “can’t make any excuses,” despite missing two weeks and the season opener because of COVID-19 protocols.After TCU opened up a 12-3 lead to start the game, Liberty crawled its way back, setting the tone for what would be a battle the rest of the afternoon.The Frogs held a slim 27-26 lead at halftime.The Flames then took a one-point lead of their own seven minutes into the second half, but the Frogs responded with authority. Spurred by two-straight buckets from Samuel, the Frogs popped off on a 13-3 run to regain the lead.TCU could never take a double-digit lead, though, as Liberty stayed in contention down to the final minute. After the Flame hit a layup with 30 seconds left to pull within two, Farabello forced a crucial turnover to end all hope for the Flames.Farabello finished with eight points, going 2-for-3 from behind-the-arc. The sophomore has hit multiple threes in every game this season.Samuel finished with eight points, five boards, a steal and a block.“Against Tulsa and Liberty, you beat two teams who beat Power Five teams regularly,” Dixon said. “Those are hard to play.”With two close wins and a championship trophy under their belt, the Frogs will head back home to face Northwestern State in their next contest.

Don’t put the Guatemalan press in quarantine! Guatemala: 51 Signatories Call For Authorities To Drop Criminal Charges Against Indigenous Journalist Anastasia Mejía Red alert for green journalism – 10 environmental reporters killed in five years Local TV presenter Yensi Roberto Ordoñez Galdámez was found murdered yesterday in Nueva Concepción, in the southern department of Escuintla. The motive is not yet known but he had reportedly been threatened and harassed in connection with his work as journalist. Relatives said unidentified individuals recently extorted 25,000 quetzals (200 euros) from him.Aged 24, Ordoñez presented a news programme on municipal TV station Canal 14. He had also hosted a children’s programme for the past seven years. His body was found in a car outside a school where he taught classes. He had been stabbed.Reporters Without Borders urges investigators not to rule out the possibility that the motive was linked to Ordoñez’s work as a journalist, and to do everything possible to identify and arrest those responsible without delay. Meanwhile, the NGO Cerigua reports that a court in the northeastern city of Chiquimula issued an order on 18 May confirming local journalist Vasni Vásquez’s detention. Vásquez, who edits the Q’Rollo website, was arrested in early April while covering a kidnap victim’s release.The police arrested him as a participant in the abduction, although he had accreditation from the Chiquimula Journalists Network (RCS) and although the other suspects arrested in the case denied his involvement. This denial makes the detention order even more incomprehensible. In the absence of evidence, Reporters Without Borders calls for his immediate release.The frequency of violence against journalists in Central America is alarming. In neighbouring Honduras, which suffers from both criminal and political violence, Luis Mendoza, 35, the owner of the Canal 24 TV station, was murdered yesterday in Danli, in the eastern department of El Paraíso. He was shot by four heavily-armed men who intercepted his car.Photo: Prensa Libre last_img read more

Pakistani reporter gunned down by local politician

A reporter for the Urdu-language newspaper Nawa-i-Waqt, Zeeshan Ashraf Butt, 29, was shot by Imran Cheema, the head of the local municipal council, when he tried to interview him outside the headquarters of the council, and died on the spot.A former head of the press club in the town of Sambrial, Butt went to Begowala to cover the new tax that Cheema has imposed on local shopkeepers, his family said. According to his brother, Cheema became very angry about Butt’s questions, gunned him down and then fled. The local police have opened an investigation.“We call on the Punjab public prosecutions department to supervise the investigation closely and to ensure its complete independence, so that all possible light is shed on this tragedy,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk.“We also call for special facilities and judges specifically assigned to protecting journalists and combatting impunity. In particular, we call for the creation of safety hubs and special prosecutors at the regional and federal level. The issue of journalists’ safety must be placed at the centre of the campaign for the next general elections, which are due to take place within a few months.”In Pakistan, journalists are often the targets of physical violence, abduction or intimidation by the intelligence services and the military. The many unpunished murders of journalists make Pakistan, and Punjab in particular, one of the world’s most dangerous places for the media.As a result of the violence, the few outspoken critics of Pakistan’s political system are forced to leave the country. They include Taha Siddiqui, a journalist who narrowly escaped an abduction attempt in January.Pakistan is ranked 139th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.

Turbulence observations beneath Larsen C Ice Shelf, Antarctica

first_imgIncreased ocean‐driven basal melting beneath Antarctic ice shelves causes grounded ice to flow into the ocean at an accelerated rate, with consequences for global sea level. The turbulent transfer of heat through the ice shelf‐ocean boundary layer is critical in setting the basal melt rate, yet the processes controlling this transfer are poorly understood and inadequately represented in global climate models. This creates large uncertainties in predictions of future sea‐level rise. Using a hot‐water drilled access hole, two turbulence instrument clusters (TICs) were deployed 2.5 and 13.5 meters beneath Larsen C Ice Shelf in December 2011. Both instruments returned a year‐long record of turbulent velocity fluctuations, providing a unique opportunity to explore the turbulent processes within the ice shelf‐ocean boundary layer. Although the scaling between the turbulent kinetic energy (TKE) dissipation rate and mean flow speed varies with distance from the ice shelf base, at both TICs the TKE dissipation rate is balanced entirely by the rate of shear production. The freshwater released by basal melting plays no role in the TKE balance. When the upper TIC is within the log‐layer, we derive an under‐ice drag coefficient of 0.0022 and a roughness length of 0.44 mm, indicating that the ice base is smooth. Finally, we demonstrate that although the canonical three‐equation melt rate parameterization can accurately predict the melt rate for this example of smooth ice underlain by a cold, tidally‐forced boundary layer, the law of the wall assumption employed by the parameterization does not hold at low flow speeds.last_img read more

Significant rise in number of new homes in Scotland

first_imgThere has been a sharp increase in the volume of new homes built in Scotland, according to official figures.The latest housing statistics from the Scottish Government haveunveiled that the number of new homes completed across the private and social sector rose 9 per cent to 16,281 between April 2014 and March 2015, compared to the same period in 2013-14.Based on the latest data, the Scottish Government is well on track to exceed its five-year target to deliver 30,000 affordable homes by March 2016, as part of the Affordable Housing Supply Programme.Figures to the end of June 2015, show that a total of 28,048 affordable homes have now been delivered –93 per cent of the 30,000 target“By targeting resources at making private sector homes more affordable, through schemes like Help to Buy (Scotland), we have seen the number of private sector completions rise significantly,” said Scottish Housing Minister Margaret Burgess (left).House builders have welcomed the 9 nine per cent rise in the total number of new homes built across Scotland, but have called for greater early clarity on the details of the successor to the hugely successful Help to Buy (Scotland) scheme if such an increase is to be maintained.The Scottish Government announced last week that it will spend £195million over the next three years on a new shared equity scheme to help even more people acquire new build homes.A previous Help-to-Buy scheme closed in May after it became fully subscribed less than two months into this year’s round of funding.Philip Hogg (right), Chief Executive of home building industry body Homes for Scotland commented, “Whilst these figures represent an overall and welcome move in the right direction to addressing the country’s housing crisis, it should be recognised that this recovery is largely as a result of the current hugely successful Help to Buy (Scotland) scheme.“In order to maintain this positive momentum, we now need clarity on the qualifying criteria for the recently announced £195m successor to this scheme so that builders can forward plan before the introduction of the new initiative in April 2016.”Help to Buy (Scotland) Help to Buy scheme new homes in Scotland Scottish Government Philip Hogg new homes Margaret Burgess affordable homes September 15, 2015The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?
